Since we’ve come back from America (more on this later), the Bean has been largely adhering to a sausage-based diet. It’s deeply frustrating. Sometimes we can get her to have scrambled eggs or cereal or potatoes, but for the most part she demands “shussages, please” at every meal.

But tonight, I got her to eat turkey chili, containing many Actual Vegetables. How did I manage this? It was simple.


I told her it was sausage. Parenting is an exercise in improvisation.
